Kingston's gaming brand HyperX has surpassed the one million sales mark for its line of headsets.

HyperX achieved the feat in two years, with the first HyperX Cloud Gaming Headset shipped in April 2014.

The Cloud Gaming Headsets are now available in over 10,000 stores and 80 countries across six continents.

In the two years since the original Cloud launched, HyperX has expanded its headset offerings to more than 10 products, with more anticipated later this year. 

How Kingston cracked the gaming market: An interview with HyperX's Edward Baily

“Since the launch of our first gaming headset in 2014, we’ve continually evolved our design and approach to become an industry standard for quality and sound that gamers now expect,” said Edward Baily, EMEA business manager at HyperX.

“As competitive and casual gaming continues to gain popularity across PCs, console and even mobile platforms, we thrive in the challenge to further advance our headsets to new levels of user comfort and sound engagement. We are excited to have reached the one million sales milestone in such a short amount of time, and we’re just getting started.”

In June 2016, the company began shipping HyperX CloudX, its first official licensed headset for Xbox One. It was quickly followed up with an announcement for HyperX CloudX Revolver Gears of War, shipping this September, in conjunction with the Gears of War 4 game debuting this autumn.

HyperX is the high-performance product division of Kingston Technology, encompassing high-speed DDR4 and DDR3 memory, SSDs, USB flash drives, headsets and mouse pads.

HyperX recently showed off its first gaming keyboard.
